Kiddi Caru's Fundraising Frenzy!
As part of its long-term partnership with Home-Start UK, four members of the Kiddi Caru Head Office team have succeeded in conquering an amazing challenge to help raise funds on behalf of the charity. Even more epic than last year’s Snowdon challenge, the team took part in Race the Sun.
Race the Sun was held in the Brecon Beacons and in order to successfully complete the challenge the team needed to cycle 45 miles, climb Pen y Fan (2,907ft) and canoe Pontsticill Reservoir (3 km), starting at sun rise and finishing by sunset – quite literally racing the sun!
Coinciding with the team’s challenge, each of the Kiddi Caru Day Nurseries held their Annual Family Fun Day to also raise funds on behalf of Home-Start UK.
As a result of all of this fundraising activity, Kiddi Caru has been able to raise £4,000 on behalf of HomeStart UK bringing the total raised to date to over £12,000.
Home-Start UK is a national family support charity that helps parents to build better lives for their children. Volunteers provide support and friendship to more than 32,000 families every year.
Home-Start UK wants to see a society in which every parent has the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life.
Anita Frith, Senior Fundraising Development Manager at Home-Start UK commented, “We were absolutely delighted to receive another amazing donation of £4,000 collected as a result of Kiddi Caru’s ‘Race the Sun’ challenge as well as each Kiddi Caru nursery holding their Annual Family Fun Days. We are so grateful for the continued hard work and support of Caron Moseley and team, as well as all the Kiddi Caru nurseries. This donation will enable us to continue to provide vital support to fragile families and vulnerable children across the UK who need our help this year. Thank you!”
Caron Moseley, Marketing Manager at Kiddi Caru, said: “The 25th June has gone down in Kiddi Caru history – not only did we complete the challenge in under 11 hours – we also smashed our rowing record, rowing a further half mile and managing to knock 15 minutes off last year’s rowing time! The only question left is how do we top this next year?”
